~A Reality Sandwich and An Existential Ice Cold- Beer~

03 Nov

Two in the afternoon

in Ashland, New Hampshire;

having a burger

with a thick slice of onion,

mustard on the side,

and a cold bottle of beer.

Looking out a large pane window,

everything

from where I sit,

looks fine.

You pass by noticed.

I wave to you with a smile.

and I?

Unnoticed,

before we equally

looked away

and disappeared.

Not, of course,

my sandwich

and an old flame

puffing out clouds

 of smoke,

doused with an ice-cold beer.

    I wonder if sometimes it is better to be unnoticed. You wrote the scene well and could feel the tension.

    i loved your little vignettes of life. understated, but very real.
    like Brian said, you got me hungry for a burger and a beer. especially the ice-cold beer.

    PS. thanks to google maps, i went for a tour of Ashland, NH. 🙂
